Little Mell Fell

Little Mell Fell - 505m (1,657')
Completion Date: 11.04.12


This fell is even smaller than than the last one (Great Mell Fell). With a height difference of only 125m from the start point to the summit there isn't a great deal to the walk. It's very straight forward route to the top of the grassy fell with only a small section of the track traversing the the fell half way up to break up the route directly up the fell.

So with this in mind I set us a challenge of obtaining the fell and getting back to the car in under 30 minutes.

Although this fell is one of the smaller more isolated fells, Wainwright states that, "There is good in all, however, and its heathery top is a fine place for viewing the (greater) merits of the other fells." Alas though the clouds and rain had well and truly closed in meaning that we could see pretty much nothing.

After the photos were taken we checked the time and made our quick descent down the fell. I must admit that I jogged the descent to assure that I made the challenge time!

A quick dry off and fell #4 under our belt. Job Done!


Final time: 28 minutes
